Fighting Chance Mock Draft #4


On Wednesday, August 15th, we at Fighting Chance Fantasy welcomed four staff members and eight industry friends to conduct our fourth mock draft of the preseason. The roster composition was a little different for this one. It was still one quarterback, two running backs, three wide receivers and a tight end. However, instead of one flex, a kicker and a defense, we are going three flex spots and no kicker or defense. And as always, our mock drafts are full point PPR. No sense rambling anymore, let's get to our participants and the picks. We only offer you mock drafts with the best people, please follow them on Twitter. Here they are

Round 1

Round/Pick Team Player
1.1 Brian Dentrek, Sports Degens Todd Gurley, RB, Los Angeles Rams
1.2 Steve Gardner, USA Today Le'Veon Bell, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers
1.3 Michael Stepney, The Fantasy Authority David Johnson, RB, Arizona Cardinals
1.4 John LaPresto, So-Called Fantasy Experts Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Dallas Cowboys
1.5 Bob Harris, Football Diehards Antonio Brown, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
1.6 Kacey Kasem, Fighting Chance Fantasy Alvin Kamara, RB, New Orleans Saints

1.9 Anthony Cervino, Gridiron Experts Saquon Barkley, RB, New York Giants
1.10 Ryan Hallam, Fighting Chance Fantasy Dalvin Cook, RB, Minnesota Vikings
1.11 Brian Drake, Fighting Chance Fantasy Kareem Hunt, RB, Kansas City Chiefs
1.12 Joe Gallina, Rotoexperts Odell Beckham Jr, WR, New York Giants

We only get the best of the best to draft with us at Fighting Chance Fantasy, so the first round isn't going to have any real surprises. I will point out a couple of picks that have been different from other drafts we've done. First, Steve picked Leonard Fournette at number seven. Not that I think there's anything wrong with the pick, that is a little higher than he has gone in other drafts. Saquon Barkley lasting until ninth overall is a little later than he has gone in other drafts. And Odell Beckham going before DeAndre Hopkins is also a little change from traditional ADP.

Round 2

Round/Pick Team Player
2.1 Joe Gallina, Rotoexperts Devonta Freeman, RB, Atlanta Falcons
2.2 Brian Drake, Fighting Chance Fantasy Julio Jones, WR, Atlanta Falcons
2.3 Ryan Hallam, Fighting Chance Fantasy DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Houston Texans
2.4 Anthony Cervino, Gridiron Experts Christian McCaffrey, RB, Carolina Panthers
2.5 Jen Smith, The Fantasy Authority Michael Thomas, WR, New Orleans Saints
2.6 Steve Rapin, Fighting Chance Fantasy Keenan Allen, WR, Los Angeles Chargers
2.7 Kacey Kasem, Fighting Chance Fantasy A.J. Green, WR, Cincinnati Bengals
2.8 Bob Harris, Football Diehards Joe Mixon, RB, Cincinnati Bengals
2.9 John LaPresto, So-Called Fantasy Experts Rob Gronkowski, TE, New England Patriots
2.10 Michael Stepney, The Fantasy Authority Davante Adams, WR, Green Bay Packers
2.11 Steve Gardner, USA Today Mike Evans, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
2.12 Brian Dentrek, Sports Degens Adam Theilen, WR, Minnesota Vikings

I couldn't have been happier to get Dalvin Cook in the 10th hole in the first round, but never did I dream that I would turn around and get DeAndre Hopkins in the second. Jackpot! My favorite running back outside of the top four and my favorite receiver. I was happy. The second round was still mostly chalk. I don't think you can look at any pick here and think it was crazy. Solid round ladies and gents!

Round 3

Round/Pick Team Player
3.1 Brian Dentrek, Sports Degens Jarvis Landry, WR, Cleveland Browns
3.2 Steve Gardner, USA Today Travis Kelce, TE, Kansas City Chiefs
3.3 Michael Stepney, The Fantasy Authority Jordan Howard, RB, Chicago Bears
3.4 John LaPresto, So-Called Fantasy Experts T.Y Hilton, WR, Indianapolis Colts
3.5 Bob Harris, Football Diehards Tyreek Hill, WR, Kansas City Chiefs
3.6 Kacey Kasem, Fighting Chance Fantasy Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers
3.7 Steve Rapin, Fighting Chance Fantasy Doug Baldwin, WR, Seattle Seahawks
3.8 Jen Smith, The Fantasy Authority Alex Collins, RB, Baltimore Ravens
3.9 Anthony Cervino, Gridiron Experts Jerick McKinnon, RB, San Francisco 49ers
3.10 Ryan Hallam, Fighting Chance Fantasy Zach Ertz, TE, Philadelphia Eagles
3.11 Brian Drake, Fighting Chance Fantasy LeSean McCoy, RB, Buffalo Bills
3.12 Joe Gallina, Rotoexperts Kenyan Drake, RB, Miami Dolphins

Round 3 started with a surprise with Jarvis Landry. Now this is a PPR draft, but with some pretty solid wide receivers still on the board, I didn't see that pick coming. I thought Michael Stepney gets the gold star for his pick of Jordan Howard. That's likely a top ten running back with the third pick of the third round. Kacey Kasem shook the boat by picking the first quarterback in the third. Our last mock she took her only quarterback  with her final pick, so she said why not shake it up and take one early this time? Take a look at Kacey's team if you want to see how things can shake up if you go QB early. I took Zach Ertz which I regretted later. I wish I had taken Kenyan Drake and probably could have gotten Ertz at my next spot. I did have Jerick McKinnon all queued up before I was sniped by Anthony Cervino. I was also a big fan of Bob Harris' pick of Tyreek Hill here in the third. 

Round 4

Round/Pick Team Player
4.1 Joe Gallina, Rotoexperts Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Arizona Cardinals
4.2 Brian Drake, Fighting Chance Fantasy Dion Lewis, RB, Tennessee Titans
4.3 Ryan Hallam, Fighting Chance Fantasy Derrick Henry, RB, Tennessee Titans
4.4 Anthony Cervino, Gridiron Experts Amari Cooper, WR, Oakland Raiders
4.5 Jen Smith, The Fantasy Authority Jay Ajayi, RB, Philadelphia Eagles
4.6 Steve Rapin, Fighting Chance Fantasy Stefon Diggs, WR, Minnesota Vikings
4.7 Kacey Kasem, Fighting Chance Fantasy Demaryius Thomas, WR, Denver Broncos
4.8 Bob Harris, Football Diehards Royce Freeman, RB, Denver Broncos
4.9 John LaPresto, So-Called Fantasy Experts Sony Michel, RB, New England Patriots
4.10 Michael Stepney, The Fantasy Authority Golden Tate, WR, Detroit Lions
4.11 Steve Gardner, USA Today Brandin Cooks, WR, Los Angeles Rams
4.12 Brian Dentrek, Sports Degens Duke Johnson, RB, Cleveland Browns

In a PPR league you have to love Joe Gallina getting Larry Fitzgerald to start the fourth round. The ageless one seems like he should have a shot at 100 catches again this season. Brian Drake and I took Dion Lewis and Derrick Henry back to back. Who got the better pick? Drake got the pass catching back, which in a PPR league is great. I took the guy who I think will lead the backfield in carries, and who I think will show why the Titans drafted him highly a few years ago. Anthony Cervino took Amari Cooper who people either love or think is wildly overrated. I like the pick there, but I know Cooper is one that people's opinions differ on greatly. Steve Rapin getting Stefon Diggs here was an absolute steal. Harris and LaPresto go back to back rookie runners with Royce Freeman and Sony Michel. I like Freeman a lot because I like no one else in the backfield. And with Michel's injury being not as bad as expected and Rex Burkhead coming up injured, both guys look like they have dynamite picks. 

Round 5

Round/Pick Team Player
5.1 Brian Dentrek, Sports Degens Lamar Miller, RB, Houston Texans
5.2 Steve Gardner, USA Today Mark Ingram, RB, New Orleans Saints
5.3 Michael Stepney, The Fantasy Authority Rashaad Penny, RB, Seattle Seahawks
5.4 John LaPresto, So-Called Fantasy Experts Alshon Jeffery, WR, Philadelphia Eagles
5.5 Bob Harris, Football Diehards Isaiah Crowell, RB, New York Jets
5.6 Kacey Kasem, Fighting Chance Fantasy Chris Thompson, RB, Washington Redskins
5.7 Steve Rapin, Fighting Chance Fantasy Allen Robinson, WR, Chicago Bears
5.8 Anthony Cervino, Gridiron Experts Tevin Coleman, RB, Atlanta Falcons
5.9 Ryan Hallam, Fighting Chance Fantasy Rex Burkhead, RB, New England Patriots
5.10 Ryan Hallam, Fighting Chance Fantasy Ronald Jones II, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
5.11 Brian Drake, Fighting Chance Fantasy Juju Smith-Schuster, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
5.12 Joe Gallina, Rotoexperts Corey Davis, WR, Tennessee Titans

Round 5 was extremely interesting as I think many people took chances. Steve Gardner took a suspended Mark Ingram. That wasn't a big chance though as I expect Ingram to come back after his suspension and do well. Michael Stepney took injured rookie Rashaad Penny. His injury will likely cost him the rest of the preseason which could be detrimental to his early season chances. I love the picks of Allen Robinson and Chris Thompson, although both are coming off major injuries last season. Rex Burkhead, as I said earlier, and he always seems to be dealing with some nagging injury. Corey Davis is also dealing with a preseason injury. I also took Ronald Jones II who is not guaranteed a starter's share of carries. None of this means that these guys won't have good 2018 seasons, but they come in with a few question marks. 

Round 6

Round/Pick Team Player
6.1 Joe Gallina, Rotoexperts Chris Carson, RB, Seattle Seahawks
6.2 Brian Drake, Fighting Chance Fantasy Marquise Goodwin, WR, San Francisco 49ers
6.3 Ryan Hallam, Fighting Chance Fantasy Deshaun Watson, QB, Houston Texans
6.4 Anthony Cervino, Gridiron Experts Marvin Jones, WR, Detroit Lions
6.5 Jen Smith, The Fantasy Authority Pierre Garcon, WR, San Francisco 49ers
6.6 Steve Rapin, Fighting Chance Fantasy Kerryon Johnson, RB, Detroit Lions
6.7 Kacey Kasem, Fighting Chance Fantasy Jamison Crowder, WR, Washington Redskins
6.8 Bob Harris, Football Diehards Robby Anderson, WR, New York Jets
6.9 John LaPresto, So-Called Fantasy Experts Sammy Watkins, WR, Kansas City Chiefs
6.10 Michael Stepney, The Fantasy Authority Delanie Walker, TE, Tennessee Titans
6.11 Steve Gardner, USA Today Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks
6.12 Brian Dentrek, Sports Degens Chris Hogan, WR, New England Patriots

Both 49ers starting receivers went in this round as Brian Drake took Marquise Goodwin and a few picks later Jen Smith followed with Pierre Garcon. I like both guys. In a PPR I think I like Garcon a little bit more. He was having a great season last year before he got hurt with Brian Hoyer and CJ Beathard at quarterback. Now it is Jimmy G's time. Two Lions also went with Cervino taking Marvin Jones and Steve taking Kerryon Johnson. This was great value for Marvin Jones here in the sixth, and Steve saw that running back cliff coming and grabbed a solid rookie. I, of course, took my man crush quarterback in Deshaun Watson, and Steve Gardner took the third quarterback off the board with Russell Wilson. It is about time some of the quarterbacks started to go. 

Round 7

Round/Pick Team Player
7.1 Brian Dentrek, Sports Degens Trey Burton, TE, Chicago Bears
7.2 Steve Gardner, USA Today Marshawn Lynch, RB, Oakland Raiders
7.3 Michael Stepney, The Fantasy Authority Josh Gordon, WR, Cleveland Browns
7.4 John LaPresto, So-Called Fantasy Experts Aaron Jones, RB, Green Bay Packers
7.5 Bob Harris, Football Diehards Jordan Reed, TE, Washington Redskins
7.6 Kacey Kasem, Fighting Chance Fantasy Greg Olsen, TE, Carolina Panthers
7.7 Steve Rapin, Fighting Chance Fantasy Tarik Cohen, RB, Chicago Bears
7.8 Jen Smith, The Fantasy Authority Emmanuel Sanders, WR, Denver Broncos
7.9 Anthony Cervino, Gridiron Experts Michael Crabtree, WR, Baltimore Ravens
7.10 Ryan Hallam, Fighting Chance Fantasy Jordy Nelson, WR, Oakland Raiders
7.11 Brian Drake, Fighting Chance Fantasy Evan Engram, TE, New York Giants
7.12 Joe Gallina, Rotoexperts Carlos Hyde, RB, Cleveland Browns

Tight end was the position of choice in Round 7 as three more went off the board. Trey Burton to Brian Dentrek, Jordan Reed to Bob Harris, Greg Olsen to Kacey Kasem, and Evan Engram to Brian Drake. Anyone who reads my work knows that I love Engram, and that is another reason I regret taking Ertz. Four rounds later I could have had Engram. Olsen and Burton is a tough choice for me and I think both will do well. I'm not a Jordan Reed fan personally, just because of the extensive injury history. The enigmatic Josh Gordon went to Steve Gardner. The more I think about Gordon the more I think he is either going to have a monster season or be a colossal disappointment. Three high volume PPR receivers went here also with Emmanuel Sanders, Michael Crabtree, and I took Jordy Nelson. Can't complain there. Finally, Joe Gallina ended the round with a guy who is going to be firing up draft boards and that's Carlos Hyde. Seems like he is winning the starting job easily, and you could see him start going in the fifth round soon. 

Round 8

Round/Pick Team Player
8.1 Joe Gallina, Rotoexperts Jamaal Williams, RB, Green Bay Packers
8.2 Brian Drake, Fighting Chance Fantasy Cooper Kupp, WR, Los Angeles Rams
8.3 Ryan Hallam, Fighting Chance Fantasy Will Fuller, WR, Houston Texans
8.4 Anthony Cervino, Gridiron Experts Kyle Rudolph, TE, Minnesota Vikings
8.5 Jen Smith, The Fantasy Authority Cam Newton, QB, Carolina Panthers
8.6 Steve Rapin, Fighting Chance Fantasy C.J. Anderson, RB, Carolina Panthers
8.7 Kacey Kasem, Fighting Chance Fantasy Robert Woods, WR, Los Angeles Rams
8.8 Bob Harris, Football Diehards Devin Funchess, WR, Carolina Panthers
8.9 John LaPresto, So-Called Fantasy Experts Julian Edelman, WR, New England Patriots
8.10 Michael Stepney, The Fantasy Authority Cameron Meredith, WR, New Orleans Saints
8.11 Steve Gardner, USA Today Randall Cobb, WR, Green Bay Packers
8.12 Brian Dentrek, Sports Degens Drew Brees, QB, New Orleans Saints

With Aaron Jones nursing a hamstring injury and a two game suspension, Joe Gallina started this round with Jamaal Williams, which is a pick I really like. I took Will Fuller, but I did so with little confidence. Kyle Rudolph goes off the board in an absolute steal for Anthony Cervino. Jen Smith takes Cam Newton who I am not a huge fan of, but is great value in the middle of the eighth round. John LaPresto took the suspended Julian Edelman, who I was going to take but thought I could wait one more round on. Finally, Michael Stepney took another receiver I like in later rounds and that is Cameron Meredith who is now in New Orleans. 

Round 9

Round/Pick Team Player
9.1 Brian Dentrek, Sports Degens Kenny Stills, WR, Miami Dolphins
9.2 Steve Gardner, USA Today Jimmy Graham, TE, Green Bay Packers
9.3 Michael Stepney, The Fantasy Authority Theo Riddick, RB, Detroit Lions
9.4 John LaPresto, So-Called Fantasy Experts Nick Chubb, RB, Cleveland Browns
9.5 Bob Harris, Football Diehards Tyler Eifert, TE, Cincinnati Bengals
9.6 Kacey Kasem, Fighting Chance Fantasy Samaje Perine, RB, Washington Redskins
9.7 Steve Rapin, Fighting Chance Fantasy Sterling Shepard, WR, New York Giants
9.8 Jen Smith, The Fantasy Authority Nelson Agholor, WR, Phialdelphia Eagles
9.9 Anthony Cervino, Gridiron Experts Marlon Mack, RB, Indianapolis Colts
9.10 Ryan Hallam, Fighting Chance Fantasy Allen Hurns, WR, Dallas Cowboys
9.11 Brian Drake, Fighting Chance Fantasy Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots
9.12 Joe Gallina, Rotoexperts Kirk Cousins, QB, Minnesota Vikings

Round 9 was highlighted with a few guys I really like. Steve Rapin took Sterling Shepard who I love as the Giants number two receiver this season. That pick was followed by another I love in Nelson Agholor to Jen Smith. Alshon Jeffery might have the bigger name, but Agholor will be the number one receiver in Philly by season's end. I took Allen Hurns who I really like to have a career year for the Cowboys. Tom Brady and Kirk Cousins were the last two picks of Round 9. Highway Robbery on both of them! What amazing picks Brian Drake and Joe Gallina made!

Round 10

Round/Pick Team Player
10.1 Joe Gallina, Rotoexperts David Njoku, TE, Cleveland Browns
10.2 Brian Drake, Fighting Chance Fantasy Corey Clement, RB, Philadelphia Eagles
10.3 Ryan Hallam, Fighting Chance Fantasy Mike Williams, WR, Los Angeles Chargers
10.4 Anthony Cervino, Gridiron Experts D.J. Moore, WR, Carolina Panthers
10.5 Jen Smith, The Fantasy Authority Nyheim Hines, RB, Indianapolis Colts
10.6 Steve Rapin, Fighting Chance Fantasy Jack Doyle, TE, Indianapolis Colts
10.7 Kacey Kasem, Fighting Chance Fantasy Dede Westbrook, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars
10.8 Bob Harris, Football Diehards Peyton Barber, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
10.9 John LaPresto, So-Called Fantasy Experts Dez Bryant, WR, Free Agent
10.10 Michael Stepney, The Fantasy Authority Matt Breida, RB, San Francisco 49ers
10.11 Steve Gardner, USA Today Calvin Ridley, WR, Atlanta Falcons
10.12 Brian Dentrek, Sports Degens Jordan Wilkins, RB, Indianapolis Colts

Man, I feel like I have been praising Joe Gallina a lot, but again I like his pick of David Njoku. There is a chance he could disappoint again, but the kid has a world of talent he just needs the chance. Brian Drake took my running back sleeper in Corey Clement. This one might take a few weeks to pay off, but I think it will. I took Mike Williams hoping the second year man can stay healthy. Steve took the only member of the Colts I'm willing to draft in Jack Doyle. Kacey took my wide receiver sleeper in Dede Westbrook. Look for this kid to shine this year. Steve Gardner took Calvin Ridley who some thing can be the most productive rookie. And both Colts rookie runners went this round with Nyheim Hines going to Jen Smith and Jordan Wilkins to Brian Dentrek. Wilkins is the one who seems to be climbing up draft boards lately with Hines falling a little. Can either over take Marlon Mack? We shall see!

Round 11

Round/Pick Team Player
11.1 Brian Dentrek, Sports Degens Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Jacksonville Jaguars
11.2 Steve Gardner, USA Today D'Onta Foreman, RB, Houston Texans
11.3 Michael Stepney, The Fantasy Authority Carson Wentz, QB, Philadelphia Eagles
11.4 John LaPresto, So-Called Fantasy Experts Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Buffalo Bills
11.5 Bob Harris, Football Diehards Andrew Luck, QB, Indianapolis Colts
11.6 Kacey Kasem, Fighting Chance Fantasy Latavius Murray, RB, Minnesota Vikings
11.7 Steve Rapin, Fighting Chance Fantasy Matthew Stafford, QB, Detroit Lions
11.8 Jen Smith, The Fantasy Authority Jared Cook, TE, Oakland Raiders
11.9 Anthony Cervino, Gridiron Experts Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, San Francisco 49ers
11.10 Ryan Hallam, Fighting Chance Fantasy Austin Ekeler, RB, Los Angeles Chargers
11.11 Brian Drake, Fighting Chance Fantasy Marqise Lee, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars
11.12 Joe Gallina, Rotoexperts Quincy Enunwa, WR, New York Jets

Four quarterbacks went in Round 11 as the strategy to wait on quarterbacks in our mock drafts continues to pay off. Carson Wentz, who I love, goes to Michael Stepney. Andrew Luck, who I don't love, goes to Bob Harris. Matthew Stafford and Jimmy Garoppolo who I think are towards the lower end of starting quarterbacks go to Steve Rapin and Anthony Cervino, respectively. Solid picks. I took Austin Ekeler, who seemed to eat into Melvin Gordon's production ever so slightly last year. Brian Drake also had a solid pick of Marqise Lee who looks to be the Jags number one receiver this season. to get a number one receiver in the 11th round of a draft is good work. 

Round 12

Round/Pick Team Player
12.1 Joe Gallina, Rotoexperts John Brown, WR, Baltimore Ravens
12.2 Brian Drake, Fighting Chance Fantasy LeGarrette Blount, RB, Detroit Lions
12.3 Ryan Hallam, Fighting Chance Fantasy Giovani Bernard, RB, Cincinnati Bengals
12.4 Anthony Cervino, Gridiron Experts Michael Gallup, WR, Dallas Cowboys
12.5 Jen Smith, The Fantasy Authority Rishard Matthews, WR, Tennessee Titans
12.6 Steve Rapin, Fighting Chance Fantasy George Kittle, TE, San Francisco 49ers
12.7 Kacey Kasem, Fighting Chance Fantasy Ty Montgomery, RB, Green Bay Packers
12.8 Bob Harris, Football Diehards Philip Rivers, QB, Los Angeles Chargers
12.9 John LaPresto, So-Called Fantasy Experts Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Pittsburgh Steelers
12.10 Michael Stepney, The Fantasy Authority Anthony Miller, WR, Chicago Bears
12.11 Steve Gardner, USA Today James White, RB, New England Patriots
12.12 Brian Dentrek, Sports Degens Paul Richardson, WR, Washington Redskins

As we get closer to the end of the draft obviously it comes with picks that are less sure. Although, almost all of these selections at worst make sense. I took Gio Bernard who should be very solid in a PPR league. Anthony Cervino took rookie Michael Gallup who could possibly be the Cowboys top receiver if he starts strong. Rishard Matthews has been a popular late round pick all preseason. George Kittle looks like a solid tight end. Bob Harris went with Philip Rivers which is an AMAZING pick, and backs up his injury prone pick of Andrew Luck the round before. That's how you do it folks if you want Andrew Luck. Get a VERY reliable backup. Michael Stepney took impressive rookie Anthony Miller, and Steve Gardner grabs James White who could have a nice role with the Pats backfield all banged up. 

Round 13

Round/Pick Team Player
13.1 Brian Dentrek, Sports Degens Bilal Powell, RB, New York Jets
13.2 Steve Gardner, USA Today Matt Ryan, QB, Atlanta Falcons
13.3 Michael Stepney, The Fantasy Authority Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs
13.4 John LaPresto, So-Called Fantasy Experts Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams
13.5 Bob Harris, Football Diehards Chris Godwin, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
13.6 Kacey Kasem, Fighting Chance Fantasy Kenny Golladay, WR, Detroit Lions
13.7 Steve Rapin, Fighting Chance Fantasy Devontae Booker, RB, Denver Broncos
13.8 Jen Smith, The Fantasy Authority DeSean Jackson, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
13.9 Anthony Cervino, Gridiron Experts Chris Ivory, RB, Buffalo Bills
13.10 Ryan Hallam, Fighting Chance Fantasy O.J. Howard, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
13.11 Brian Drake, Fighting Chance Fantasy Tyrell Williams, WR, Los Angeles Chargers
13.12 Joe Gallina, Rotoexperts Mohamad Sanu, WR, Atlanta Falcons

Lucky Round 13 saw three more quarterbacks go off the board in Matt Ryan, Pat Mahomes, and Jared Goff. Goff is my favorite out of those three. I was a big fan of Kacey Kasem's pick of Kenny Golladay as well as Jen Smith's pick of DeSean Jackson. Anthony Cervino took LeSean McCoy suspension insurance in Chris Ivory. I took OJ Howard as my backup tight end as a guy with massive upside and I do think he will take over the most targets from Cameron Brate this year. Brian Drake took Tyrell Williams as the supposed number two for the Chargers, and Joe Gallina took a rock solid safe pick in Mohamed Sanu as the boring, but productive second receiver in Atlanta. 

Round 14

Round/Pick Team Player
14.1 Joe Gallina, Rotoexperts Courtland Sutton, WR, Denver Broncos
14.2 Brian Drake, Fighting Chance Fantasy Jeremy Hill, RB, New England Patriots
14.3 Ryan Hallam, Fighting Chance Fantasy Derek Carr, QB, Oakland Raiders
14.4 Anthony Cervino, Gridiron Experts Brandon Marshall, WR, Seattle Seahawks
14.5 Jen Smith, The Fantasy Authority Spencer Ware, RB, Kansas City Chiefs
14.6 Steve Rapin, Fighting Chance Fantasy Alex Smith, QB, Washington Redskins
14.7 Kacey Kasem, Fighting Chance Fantasy Frank Gore, RB, Miami Dolphins
14.8 Bob Harris, Football Diehards Darren Sproles, RB, Philadelphia Eagles
14.9 John LaPresto, So-Called Fantasy Experts DeVante Parker, WR, Miami Dolphins
14.10 Michael Stepney, The Fantasy Authority Tyler Lockett, WR, Seattle Seahawks
14.11 Steve Gardner, USA Today Keelan Cole, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars
14.12 Brian Dentrek, Sports Degens Christian Kirk, WR, Arizona Cardinals

I'm just gonna hit the high notes of the last couple rounds. Love the Gallina picks. Courtland Sutton I think is going to surprise people with a solid rookie year and then he ended the draft with Ben Watson who is an amazing tight end sleeper. Brian Drake took Jeremy Hill who could be revitalized with the running back injuries in New England.  I also like Brian Dentrek's pick of Christian Kirk in the 14th round. He caught a touchdown in the preseason game and I think could be a sneaky number two for the Cardinals. Steve Gardner nabbed Josh Doctson in the last round. Is this the year he lives up to the hype? Kacey took her favorite sleeper receiver in Cole Beasley, and finally I ended my picks with Terrelle Pryor.  Someone has to be a top receiver for the Jets right? With Robby Anderson always in trouble with the law, maybe it can be Pryor to be the big time receiver after a colossal crap in the bed last year.
